at the university. this is about half an hour. >> now joining us here at george mason university is professor philip auerswald, whose most recent book is "the coming prosperity: how entrepreneurs are transforming the global economy." here's the cover of the book. professor auerswald, what role does fairplay and economic development? >> guest: well, that's a great question and maybe i'll talk about what role does fear play in our conversation about development and our conversation presence? so when we talk about our reality and share our ideas in the marketplace, we are competing with other ideas. we know three things about marketplace ideas. short-term sells better than long-term. fear sells better than hope. negative sells better than positive that is to say exaggerated flows better than moderated. to receive disproportionate number of short-term narratives of negative, exaggerated stories essentially. so short-term on the negative come exaggerated. that's what's talked about any ideas. we are creatures who grew up in the savanna or environments where we were always subject to thre

that americans are used to experiencing. and it was a terrible tragedy and the crime. but there were a lot of ideas as to how to cast foreign policy in response to 9/11, such as invading iraq and people were actually advocating this well before we had the 9/11 terrorist attacks. making regime change in iraq the official policy of federal government actually occurred during the clinton administration when the iraq liberation act was passed in 1998 and signed into law by president clinton and supported by many republicans in congress. it had bipartisan support. vice president gore was a supporter, that is why i am not completely convinced that that is a counterfactual point. we have a lot of interest and people were casting around, trying to find solutions. and i do think the initialization of afghanistan was correct, whether that means we need to be there for 10 years or until afghanistan becomes connecticut, that is another matter entirely. but i think the initial strikes against those were necessary and just. but then to go out and pursue regime change, prior to 9/11, they simply cast

electrical wiring in along with a plastic and now i can use other substances like starch-based substances which is biodegradable. i had the privilege of talking to a biologist in new york and he is developing a dna printer. yeah, so we know how to sequence things pretty easily. the sequences are not hard. i can find them on ebay now. but printing out, to print the dna, it is a big tool. but every year we get our flu shots, right? we definitely will soon. we can guess what the flu is going to be this year. we never know. rather than at the beginning of the season the doctor says, actually, it turns out that influenza is the this or that end, here's a little code and print out your own vaccine. and, you know, you little liquid and drink it and that is a 3-d printer as well. that is printing dna, which is a physical material. you have to ask things like what could go wrong and questions to that effect. i think the only thing that stands in our way, i have seen a lot of elitist types of technology and i'm very impressed. i agree that you're not going to print them out anytime soon.

thought i could just describe it. by the way, i wish you had not reminded liberals that many of us don't think they've done so well in trying to destroy me because more than any book i've ever written, i have never had a book so ignored by the mainstream media. [laughter] i always make -- this is one thing i changed my mind about. i've maintained ferociously liberals can't learn that if you cut taxes, there's revenue to the treasury, can't learn it doesn't work to coddle and suck up to terrorists, but, apparently, they can learn if they attack ann coulter, she sells more books. [laughter] i love those gals on "the view," and i wanted to kiss them all before i left. [laughter] you know, i realize that people who are familiar with the actual history of civil rights in america or who have read my books notice that they had not read the books, but that was great because they believe everything the "new york times" believes, but the new york times won't argue with me. at least the gals on "the view" will argue with me. the summary of the book is white guilt never produced anything good,

unfortunately, that is not a permanent solution. us suspect at this time, not many young people would come forward to take advantage of that process and in reality only 7% of the children who were likely to be eligible had come forward and moved through that process. we need a permanent solution for kids who have not come through their own choice so they could be absorbed into the country that they know. there are a variety of ways to do that and i would support moving forward with that kind of
